CHHS KEY CLUB JUNE NEWSLETTER End-of-the-Year-Banquet Review: Key Club Banquet was my so amazing and a truly exceptional experience not just coming from an officerâ€™s view but as any attendee. Each and every individual in there has proven that they are dedicated to service or are willing to take the initiative to become a future leader. In the slideshow, there were tears, shocks, and laughs of joy. Everyone had an amazing time just enjoying good food or posing for pictures in front of our beautiful backdrop. Banquet was by far one of the greatest achievements from the beginning of our term, even in preparation the board was able to effectively plan, assess, and innovate to make banquet successful. To me, I had fun blowing balloons, seeing all my friends come, and watching members get awards and receive a warm hug from our IP president. This was definitely one of the most enjoyable experiences so far and I hope that as a club, we will continue to cheer, celebrate, and inspire others to provide service and spirit to those who need it. -Dennis Chen

Recap: Page 6 CHHS KEY CLUB JUNE NEWSLETTER Townsend BBQ/Dance Help-out On Friday, June 7th, our Key Club had the honor of helping out at Townsend Junior High’s annual 8th grade BBQ and Dance. From 4:30-9:00pm, our club did as much as we could, from the set-up to the clean-up. We started off by bringing the materials outside from the storage. Cotton Candy, Snow Cones, and Candy filled the tables as we continued the set-up. I was so surprised by the amount of food that they had! The music was loud, the hot dogs were grilling, we had all the elements needed to have a great time. The students arrived and began to chow down on the hamburgers and hot dogs. Many came up to get cotton candy and snow cones. We had to really work to avoid any back-ups. Midway through the event, our club had the opportunity to speak to the principal about starting a Builders’ Club. It has been one of our club’s goals to charter a Builders’ Club, so we were extremely excited when the principal agreed to have us over to their school in the fall to show the students a presentation on Key Club and information on what a Builders’ Club is.As the night progressed, we helped clean the tables and pick up trash. The 8th graders were having a great time and we were happy for them. After most of the students were finished eating, they headed into the media center to dance. In the media center, there were so many interesting and fun activities. There was a face painting stand, a video game room, a photo booth, and of course, a dance floor. It was almost a black-out dance; there were many strobe lights and even, a DISCO BALL! This BBQ and Dance was a good chance for us to grow closer to Townsend Junior High. This friendship might be especially significant because the school might have their own Builders’ Club this fall. After the students had left, we cleaned the lunch tables and media center. We even helped out after the event, taping signs and marking the floor for their 8th grade promotion. In the end, our club had a great night of service and we look forward to any future interactions with the school.

CHHS KEY CLUB JUNE NEWSLETTER Senior Graduation Ushering: Graduation Ushering at the Citizens Bank Arena was a memorable event Iâ€™d never dare to forget. As attendees charged through the doors to find a good seat for Graduation, volunteers shuffled around, passing out programs and guiding people to where they wanted to be. Running around from one end to the other and counting different numbers of programs people wanted, the night of service turned into a night of leg and math exercise. But hearing thank-youâ€™s from so many people at one time and seeing the anticipating eyes of different families covered our tire and exhaustion. Saving the best for last, volunteers were given free tickets to attend the graduation. The arena was no less than baseball stadium. From all corners of the arena, people stood, cheering and clapping. The event became one of our major fundraisers for the month of June. CHHS Key Club was given $300 from the school for the volunteers who attended. Being able to satisfy attendees, fundraise, and experience such a wonderful graduation, the event was a great success. -Joyce Xiong

CHHS KEY CLUB JUNE NEWSLETTER D-15/D-36West Officer Training Conference: On Saturday, June 15th at the Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanis District Office in Rancho Cucamonga, CHHS Key Club officers and even a few members (Justin Li & Max Yang) gathered with other officers of Division 15 Giraffes and Division 36 West Huskies. At this Officer Training conference hosted by Amy He, D15's LTG and Aaron Gomez, D36W's LTG, all officers present, listened intently, and took intricate notes regarding how to be a better officer. Throughout general sessions, we learned about the history of Key Club, the structure, and a general view of how to keep a club running. Over the course of the conference, several workshops were held specific to officer positions such as President, Vice President, and Secretary. Generic workshops were held such as Public Speaking, and Finding Service Projects as well. Although it may have seemed like the conference was all work, and no play, there was in fact many ice-breakers which provided a fun way to bond with the other divisions! The conference proved extremely insightful to all, and many officers walked out of the Kiwanis District Office with a new perspective of Key Club. -Sona Senapati
